Born in Cles (Tn) in 1988.

He started mountaineering and caving from an early age under the guidance of his family. This has helped him to develop a strong link with the outdoor world and in particular with the mountains where he practices hiking, alpine sky, sky mountaineering, canyoning and caving.

The speleological activity was mainly concentrated in northern Italy (Brenta Dolomites and Venetian Dolomites) with the participation in various exploration camps on the national territory.

In 2013 he graduated in Geology and Technical Geology at the University of Padua and in the same year he passed the exam for caving Instructor of the National School of Speleology (SNS) of the Italian Mountain Club (CAI).

Since 2014 he is a member of La Venta Esplorazioni Geografiche with which he has participated in various international exploration expeditions since 2009.

Since 2015 he is a member of the Italian Alpine and Speleological Rescue Team (CNSAS), in which he currently holds the role of Speleological Rescue Technician and, from 2019, also that one of Operational Coordinator Specialist (TCO).

Since 2017 he is qualified for rope access work on natural and artificial sites.

In 2019 he worked in the MB logistics team at the ESA-CAVES course of the European Space Agency in Slovenia.
